The involvement of former Vikings coach Brad Childress in the bounty appeal hearing was curious, to say the least. He has no knowledge of anything related to what the Saints were or weren’t doing; instead, Childress was the guy who complained to the league that the Saints had a bounty on former Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, based allegedly on information former Vikings defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy had provided to Childress.
So Kennedy will be testifying regarding where he heard about the bounty, right?
Kennedy tells PFT that he won’t be testifying, and that neither his agent nor his lawyer were contacted regarding the possibility.
Basically, then, the only value Childress could have brought to the table was that Kennedy told him that someone told him the Saints had a bounty system. And Kennedy won’t be testifying.
